Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to investigate the conditions which favor use of group problem solving and decision making to examine the effect of differing organizational climates during the various phases of the systems acquisition process on selection of appropriate participatory decision making styles, to evaluate and identify quantitative methods to assist in amalgamating group opinion, and to understand the appropriate steps in utilizing this decision making approach in the systems acquisition process. A literature survey was conducted of participative decision making and of quantitative methods for amalgamating group opinion.
